A Christmas Story Contest!


The Rules
1 - First and foremost, no stolen work.
2 - You Must follow the Subject matter.
3 - If submitting a photomanipulation, you must properly credit *all* stock images, or other stock resources used in the image
4 - If you directly use any type of refference or copy a pose/idea you must credit all models, resources, references or other stock resources.
5 - Please, put you best foot Forward! Put some time and thought into this, don't just slap something together. Items that are rushed, unkempt or on lined paper, or just jumbled together with other random scribbles or doodles does not show time or thought, and will be removed. This does not mean you are disqualified - you are more than welcome to re-enter the *finished* product of that image, but an unfinished image will not qualify for the final vote.
6 - Absolutely no drama crap. If there is any fighting, those people will be asked to leave the wiki. If those involved are entries in the contest, you will be given the one warning - if it continues, you will be disqualified.
If at any point in time, I hear anyone start to complain or start gossip/rumours over the contest being rigged in any way shape or form - you are immediately disqualified - no warning. This is suppose to be FUN!!! And that crap does not make it fun, so it will *not* be tolerated -at all.

The Theme
The Theme of this wiki, contest and the subject matter of your pieces is, duuhh, 'A Christmas Story'! I don't care how you muse it - it can be serious, it can be funny, it can be perverted, it can be a flaming ode of passion and love to the movie, it can be a declaration of war and anger and shame against it -- i don't care, just so long as you are creative, original, keep it based on the subject, and have fun with it!
You can submit Artwork - Poetry - Photography or Photomanipulations. All are welcomed, just be sure to submit them in the proper section.

Deadline & Judging
The Deadline will be New Years Day, and for those of us that might be a bit off - that is January 1st 2009.

Once the Deadline hits, judging will start immediately. A public poll will be held for a favorite, or popular entry, but that does not mean that the one who wins the poll wins the whole contest. Popular Vote will be given a consolation badge. The Popular vote will also be counte towards the total, official vote. Otherwise, the judging will be done by a closed, private an annonymous group of judges that I will choose at my descretion based on their ability to be impartial to this contest. Each entry will be judged based on their originality, creativity, time/effort, skill and technique.

Unfortunately, I am a broke bitch, so I cannot offer any monetary or material prizes - BUT, you are more than welcome to get a request piece done by me, [Mordigen], if you so choose, annnd, there will be Prize medals/badges what have you to place in your House Presentation, or in your diary, or on wikis, or to brag about in messages etc etc etc. :P

There will be a First - Second - Third place medal awarded for each section, as well as an ET Favorite! consolation medal for the Popular vote for each section.
